I'm looking for an open-source automatic meshing tool or library able to generate full or dominant hexahedral mesh starting from a provided arbitrary model i.e. a surface triangular mesh stored in STL file.

What I have found is snappyHexMesh embedded in OpenFOAM. Are there some other tools that fit my purpose?

Someone already asked a quite similar question here but it's a quite old answer. Has something new been released in the meanwhile?

Thank you

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you @WolfgangBangerth. Therefore, there are no other open-source tools besides OpenFoam. Am I wrong? Do you know if there are some open-source C++ libraries able to generate hexahedral mesh? $\endgroup$ – Ricla Jan 7 at 15:08
  • $\begingroup$ Just the ones mentioned in the post you link to. $\endgroup$ – Wolfgang Bangerth Jan 7 at 16:24
